Insomnia. Lost San Jose Nights by photographer Josh Marcotte
Street lamps wash the pavement in yellow, and the city glows like the sun never set. Years of closing shifts and no car means sleep comes late, if at all. The sidewalk is empty and it will be hours before you get home. Your mind is racing and music drowns everything out. You remember stories from your family, your history class and your friends, stories about where you are and you think, “I should take a picture of this, all of this.”

Artists’ Reception: 7pm – 10pm
Live music and light refreshments
Free and open to the public

In addition to the featured solo exhibits, over 60 regional artists exhibit their work in the gallery including paintings, photography, assemblage, jewelry and textile art.

The Artists’ Reception is part of the South FIRST FRIDAYS monthly art walk, November 5, 2010. View the full schedule of exhibitions at participating venues: www.southfirstfridays.com
